Luxury Dubai City Holidays

Dressed to impress

Dubai City is all about luxury. This jewel like place looms over the desert like a mirage, its gleaming towers home to some of the most opulent shopping malls, cocktail bars and restaurants on earth. At 830m, the city’s Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world, with an observation deck offering incredible views for miles around. 

Where land meets the Persian Gulf you’ll find The Palm - a series of breathtaking artificial islands. Further along the coast is beautiful Jumeirah Beach, where you can bathe in electric blue waters in sight of the iconic Burj Al Arab. 

Families can enjoy the high octane experiences on offer at two world class waterparks, while couples can partake in some retail therapy or head out for a jaunt in Dubai Desert, which surrounds the city. Camel, 4x4 and hot air balloon rides are among the adventures that await you here.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Dubai is approximately 6 hours 30 minutes. 

Transfer Time

Transfer time from Dubai airport to Dubai City is approximately 20 minutes.

When to go

Summers in Dubai are seriously hot – 40°C kind of hot. Although all buildings are air conditioned, outdoor activities can be uncomfortable in this kind of heat, and some may even be closed. November to April is the best time to visit Dubai; rain is scarce, and temperatures stay at a comfortable mid-20s average. 

Visa Information

British citizens will be granted a free 30-day visa upon arrival in Dubai. 


In most tourist destinations in the Emirates (such as Dubai and Ras al Khaimah), it’s customary to leave a 10% cash tip in restaurants. Small tips are appreciated for other services; aim for five to 20 UAE dirhams for porters bringing your bags to your room and for taxi drivers.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Dubai is Arabic. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
